Blend 1 1/2 cups flour, sugar, coconut, vegetable oil, eggs, vanilla, and Mandarin oranges in large mixing bowl on high speed for 1/2 minute. Add remaining 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Blend on medium speed 45 seconds. Scrape bowl and stir in carrots. Pour into greased 9x13-inch cake pan (or 2 greased and floured 10-inch round pans). Bake in preheated 350° oven for 45 - 50 minutes (35–45 minutes for 10- inch pans) until tested done. Cool completely. For round pans, let cool 10 minutes before removing to wire racks to finish cooling. Frost with Orange Cream Cheese Frosting.
Orange Cream Cheese Frosting:
Cream butter and cream cheese until smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. Frosting will not be as stiff as usual. I prefer it this way to get more cream cheese flavor. You may add more powdered sugar for a stiffer frosting. Frosting will harden with refrigeration. I like to garnish this cake with drained Mandarin oranges.
